Inquest. --The Coroner, assisted by High Constable Freeman, held an inquest yesterday on the body of Bob Clarke, slave of Mr. Alexander Lithgow, of Chesterfield county, whose body was found floating in the Dock, at the intersection of fifteenth street. The jury, after examining all the testimony that would throw light on the manner of his death, came to the conclusion that it was caused by accident, and returned a verdict to that effect. The body was inclosed in a neat and substantial coffin sent by Mr. Lithgow, and was removed to the South-Side for interment.

Seizures and Arrests. New York, Sept. 16. --Four vessels were seized to-day. Seven Southerners were arrested to-day on board of the City of Manchester. Nothing treasonable being found about them, they were released. Mr. McMasters, the editor of the Freeman's Journal, has been sent to Fort Lafayette.
Mr. McMasters. --We learn that we were in error in stating that Mr. McMasters, the editor of the Freeman's Journal, who had been sent to Fort Lafayette, is an Irishman. He is a Northern man, of old Puritan descent, who some time ago changed his religious views, and became a Roman Catholic.
The inspectors consisted of three ladies and three or four gentlemen. The gentlemen never interrupted anything, but merely stood by while the ladies made the examination.--After the examination I left my things in charge of the ticket master, Mr. Freeman, as he told me that my things would be perfectly safe. Those who examined my trunk like-wise told me that my baggage would be perfectly safe there, as there would be two trusty servants of Mr. Freeman sleeping in the room that night. During Mr. Freeman sleeping in the room that night. During the night one of my trunks was broken open, and the following articles taken out: one silk dress, one crape shawl, one silk shawl, two silk handkerchiefs, one black silk vazeat, and one double locket, containing the likeness of my double locket, containing the likeness of my father on one side, and a lock of my mother's hair on the other. These articles were invaluable to me, as many of them were presents, and the locket was a token of remembrance of my parents, and every one knows how such th
The shooting affair. --An inquest was held on Thursday evening, at the Louisiana Hospital, (Baptist College,) by Alderman Sanxay, aided by High Constable Freeman, over the body of Patrick Holmes, who was shot that morning by Hugh McGinley. Testimony was elicited to show that there had been no previous difficulty between the parties, and that Holmes expressed a hope, before his death, that McGinley would be set at liberty. They were both on guard at the time of the occurrence, and had been talking together in a friendly manner. When McGinley started to go back to his post, his gun, which was under his left arm with the muzzle pointing down ward, accidentally discharged, and shot Holmes on one of his legs. The wound was very severe; and the surgeons finding that he could not service amputation, it was not resorted to, and the man died some four hours after the event. The jury rendered a verdict that Patrick Holmes, the deceased, was shot accidentally by a gun in the hands of
the fact that the Chambers of Commerce of Lyons, Ronen, St. Etienne, Mulhouse, &c., have petitioned this Government to at once recognise the Southern States, and thus put an end to the impending ruin of those manufacturing French towns. The Freeman's Journal, of Dublin, has the following in its resume of affairs as they appear at present. The Morning Herald and Daily News, of London, quite agrees with the Freeman's: The prostration of trade in France consequent on the American war isFreeman's: The prostration of trade in France consequent on the American war is about to become operative in an effort at resuscitation, by means of recognizing the Southern Confederation and raising the blockade. To this mission, we learn, several French chambers of commerce have applied themselves, and, it is added, they contemplate invoking the co-operation of the British Legislature. It is, of course, difficult to conjecture what line of policy the British Government would adopt under such circumstances; but the public would not be much surprised is it found the muc
About ten o'clock the same summoned just opposite Columbus, between Col. Tappen's Arkansas regiment, Col. Blythe's 18th Tennessee regiment, and about 5,000 or 6,000 Federals, Shortly after, Col. Marke's Louisiana regiment, Col. Pickett's, Col. Freeman's and Col. Knox Walker's Tennessee regiments were sent over. The Federals were in a strip of woods, and our men in the open field. We also had the Watson battery (Louisiana) on that side the river. In half an hour Tappan's and Wright's regiments were broken and scattered to the winds — soon after we lost Watson's battery. In half an hour more, Pickett, Walker, and Freeman were whipped and routed too. The engagement was not more than half a mile from the river — these were all the men on hand able to get across the river up to 1 o'clock.--Our men rallied several times, but could not stand the charge. After our battery was taken, the enemy run their battery close to the river bank, and fired upon the steamers, so as to preven
Gen. Wyman had been appointed Provost Marshal of Springfield and the Federal lines were strictly guarded, no person being allowed to pass West or Southwest. The expedition under Col. Dodge, which left Rolla a few days since in quest of ex-judge Freeman's band of rebels, took possession of Houston, in Texas county, on the 4th instant, and captured a large amount of rebel property, and several prominent Secessionists, including some officers of the rebel army. A large mail for the rebel army was also captured, containing information of the position of the entire rebel force in Missouri. Capt. Wood, with his rangers, has gone forward to Spring Valley, to attack the main body of Freeman's band, stationed there. From Washington — affairs across the Potomac. Washington, Nov. 8. --On Wednesday a party of sixty rebel cavalry made their appearance at Burk's Station, on the Orange and Alexandria railroad, fourteen miles from Alexandria. On the Federal troops advancing,
regard to making change for a note, and on leaving said he would see him again. He returned at night with several others, and commenced a violent demonstration, in the course of which young Moran, who was acting as bar-keeper, received a pistol ball in his stomach, from the effects of which he died on Friday, at 4 o'clock P. M. The deceased had taken no part in the difficulty, and the shooting appears to have been an unprovoked outrage.--An inquest was held by Acting Coroner Sanxay, assisted by Constable Freeman, but the testimony furnished no clue to the apprehension of the murderer, and a verdict was accordingly rendered that the death of Moran was caused by a wound inflicted by some person unknown to the jury. It is a pity that such a deed of blood should be allowed to go unpunished, and we yet have hopes that the guilty party will be found and brought to justice. The funeral took place on Saturday, from the residence of Mr. John Moran, brother of the deceased, on 9th street.
